Million Dollar Fish nets strong start to 2017
The Northern Territory's Million Dollar Fish competition has kicked off 2017 with two winners in two weeks.
Darwin locals, Benjamin Kaart and Craig “Curly” Saxelby, have started the New Year $10,000 richer each thanks to their prize catches. 

Caught in Darwin River and Daly River, the winning barra brings the total of $10,000 fish caught in Season 2 of the popular competition to 8 with $80,000 in cash prizes handed out by major sponsors, CrownBet.

In Season 2 of Million Dollar Fish, 101 barramundi were tagged and released across the Territory with 100 carrying $10,000 cash prize tags. Today’s win means there are still 92 $10,000 barra lurking and the prized million dollar fish to be caught.

The Million Dollar Fish competition runs from 1 October 2016 – 28 February 2017.
